Yes, very much. They disassemble the whole damn steering column as I understand it.

I just want to know if it's all bs he was saying because before bringing it in for recall my truck ran just as good as the day I got it.

Just checked their website and it still says that they know about the problem but have yet to figure out how to fix the problem.

I will not voluntarily take my truck in to have dealership monkeys fuck with this unless the damn light comes on and even then I might just have to put electric tape on the light or remove bulb and just depend on the fucking seat belt I have to wear by law. Damn, the steering wheel being crooked after the dipshits did this recall without it being that way beforehand is clearly from them putting the wheel back on crooked and yes, it was total BS. Now the wheel might be straight but your tie rods have been jacked with and your blinker on one side will cut off sooner than the one on the other and your steering rack isn't centered and so on and so forth depending on which thing they did to make the wheel straight. Why couldn't the jerkoffs just pull the steering wheel and center it for how the truck goes down the road is nonfuckinsense. I would have done that myself if it wasn't crooked before. Fuck stupid lame dealer bullshit!
